Just weird enough to raise an eyebrow, rocking enough to get down with, and honest enough to believe in, Desperado Pilots are taking on the world.
Taking inspiration from all forms of music, the style of Desperado Pilots comes from a blend of various and, at times, polarized influences; all filtered through the unique voice of Philip Beaton and the wet, distorted guitar tones that he grew up with. Idolizing the great modern rock bands of our time like Queens of the Stone Age, Arctic Monkeys, and Muse, this is a band that finds rock music at it's best when it has one foot in the fringe and one in the mainstream.
They hit that mark with their debut EP "EL(EP)HANT", a three-song romp through the serene, the abrasive, and the groovy. Slightly tongue-in-cheek lyrics, with strange imagery and messages of hope in times of despair, will lead you through massive walls of electric guitars, smooth bass, and thunderous drums.
Desperado Pilots released their latest single, “Bon Voyage” in August 2017. The song garnered the band international attention, making its way onto Mike Ziemer’s “Unsigned Spotlight” Spotify playlist and rotation on Viral with Candice Marshall on Limehead Radio UK. These milestones have propelled the band into a creative storm that has their next release written and ready to record.
